The graphic novel I illustrated, Witch Hunts: A Graphic History of the Burning Times, is up for an award – a Bram Stoker Award® of all things!
The Stokers are regarded as the pre-eminent Award in horror literature and to have been nominated – no, just to have Witch Hunts on the list – is truly amazing.
The nomination is wonderful, but to have worked with Rocky and Lisa, two of the most respected people in the horror genre, was the real honour. I will always be proud of the graphic novel we created, not just because it was my first, but because it’s an important book and one that has a lot to say.
Witch Hunts is up against some stiff competition mind you, so I’ll just have wait until June 15 when the winners are announced at the gala awards night in New Orleans as part of the World Horror Convention.
Rocky, Lisa and I have released a bit of a statement over at the Witch Hunts official site.
